Thoughts for those affected by the monsoon in Queensland
On behalf of everyone at NDS, we would like to send our best wishes for safe and quick resumption of services to those affected by the current monsoon trough in Queensland.
We are thinking of all those who are impacted and whose lives are significantly disrupted by this unpredictable disaster.
The record-breaking rain on north Queensland’s east coast, as well as drought-hit parts of western Queensland, are seeing community, state and commonwealth resources collectively responding to the events as individuals and communities deal with unprecedented flooding along with the loss of power, communications, food and safe drinking water.
NDS is aware that a number of our members have been affected, which is impacting their ability to deliver services. Those we have been in contact with have demonstrated their capacity to get on with the important task of supporting their service users, community and staff.
NDS extends our admiration to all members delivering services in affected areas and wish you all the best in keeping going under such difficult circumstances and the extensive clean-up and rebuild which will follow.
